Super Eagles Coach meets Wenger, Mikel ahead of Algeria clash

Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Genort Rohr, has met with Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger, as well as Chelsea midfielder and Nigeria team captain, John Obi Mikel, in London.

Rohr also met with Chelsea’s Technical Director, Michael Emenalo, even as the countdown to next month’s crucial 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Algeria is already gathering momentum.
